Very Dumb Things People Once Believed

Humans aren't perfect. We make mistakes. We goof. And sometimes our gullible natures get the best of us. Redditor u/Vinyl_BunBuns provided us with ample proof of this gullibility yesterday with an especially entertaining r/AskReddit thread. They asked followers of the page to share the absolute dumbest things people have believed. And while some of the examples are a testament to pranksters and impressionable child-minds, others are a wonderful reminder that kids (and adults) have absolutely incredible imaginations.

29 Times Intellectually Challenged Souls Believed The Onion

The Onion has been a satirical publication since 1988. That's over thirty years.
